Good Job (pun intended) Ryan!

Say could you ask them to let you build a life size chrome vader for the park?

Way to go man! Hope you have fun with it!

A thousand thanks, all. :) It's thrilling, scary, exciting, amazing, and more!
I start work with an orientation day on the 25 of July, and from then on I'm a 40-hours-a-week (or more, depending on projects) builder for Legoland!

Wow, congrats man! For quite awhile when I was really young, this was my dream job. Then of course I entered the real world--luckily for you, most people's dream job is now your reailty! How does it feel to be officially recognized as a LEGO-elite? :D

So, this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.

LEGO, you fools, you've doomed us all.

I, for one, welcome our new overlord. All hail Hypno-Chief!

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Splat!

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Chief.


Congratulations, Chief. :p
